Last weekend I went to Tanjung Pinang in Bintan Island to visit my cousin. She’s been staying there since 2003 but this will be my first time to visit her (sigh.. what a great cousin I am :-(). She’s staying there with her husband which is working in the Airbase in that town.

The ferry from Singapore to Tanjung Pinang departs Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal (take MRT to Bedok, and then take SBS Bus No. 35. The bus’s final stop is the ferry terminal). But since I was in hurry, I took a cab. To my dismay, I must waited for 1.5 hours before the ferry arrives. Unlike Singapore to Batam, the ferry frequency for Singapore to Tanjung Pinang is much less. I hope this schedule can help you to plan your travel better (unlike mine :-))

So I met her with her family. They have a very cute daughter (which makes her the cutest niece I have). She is 1.5 years old and tantrum-ridden toddler πŸ˜› Need sometime before I could get along with her. But I think she had recognize me as her uncle πŸ˜› She did cry when I waved goodbye and left for Singapore (which I don’t know whether she cried because her father or me, since my brother-in-law accompanied me going to the harbor)

  7. I need some help for my trip to see my BF at Tanjung- Pinang.. I will fly from Bangkok to Singapore and get ferry to Tanjung.. I just want to know that when I left Singapore from the ferry terminal, will they put departure stamp on my passport? and Can I just get in and out from Tanjung to Sing anytime as I plan to stay with my bf for 2 months? and I’m thai citizen, so I don’t need visa for 1 month right? Anyone who local or know about this?? Thank you..

    • Yes, they will stamp your passport. Visits by a citizen of a country member of ASEAN to other ASEAN member country (e.g. Thailand to Indonesia) is exempted from Visa. You could read the full agreement here (

      In short, as a Thai citizen with valid passport, you don’t need a Visa to visit Indonesia.

  8. Thank you so much,, I have to be there for 2 months, and I just want to make sure that I can get in and out between Indo and Sing..

  9. what is the ferry charge from TMFT to Tanjung Pinang on weekend. i am planning to go on 19/9….

    • Hi Sam,

      I don’t know what’s the latest charge, but now days Singapore – Batam ferry charge is roughly $50 for return ticket. So you could expect the Singapore – Tanjung Pinang will be slightly more expensive. But i think it would not exceed $75

  10. i am going back to tg.pinang n I was check in all my bag include myhand bag(i knw i should carry),but i was forget bcoz in hurry ni put purse in bag,and mobile also,when i in ferry i check mybag ASAP,but i cant imaging that time i have lose my purse,i cant comeback to complaint to them bcoz last minute,just i cant beleive in sensitive place can have like that people,embarasing for singapore secure!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Where and how to purchase ferrry ticket from Tanah Merah FT to Tanjung Pinang ?

    What is rate ?

  12. what is the different between ferry and cruise ?, i took speed boat from tanjung pinang to singapore 2 years ago, how long itΒ΄s take time by ferry from singapore to tanjung pianang, thx.

    • Was the speed boat a private or a public transport? If it was a public transport, then we are actually referring to the same thing here πŸ™‚

      It takes 1.5 – 2 hours from Singapore to Tanjung Pinang.

  13. Yea.. Speedboat available long long time ago..

    Now speedboat only travel from batam to tg. Pinang. It’s more for the locals to take as it’s cheaper and no air con or any comfort.

  14. I’m planning to have reunion dinner with family in Tanjung Pinang this coming year 2013 CNY. Can someone advice if there are any ferry service on New Years Eve and back in Singapore on 1st day of CNY ?

    • Hi Mel,

      As far as I know, the ferry services never stops except due to bad weather. But to be sure, you can call them to verify.

  15. Hi, good day! I just want to ask… i just stayed here in Singapore (Tampines) for almost 2 months now.. i’m planning to go to Tanjung Pinang with my friends. May i know how to get there and how much would be the budget all including going back here in Singapore. Is there also a cheper hotel there in Tanjung Pinang?.. anybody can give advice please. thanks so much. really appreciate it. πŸ˜‰

    • Two-way ferry fare is around $50. I doubt there is much thing to do at Tanjung Pinang apart from enjoying local food.

      You might have better experience if you take those resort packages found at Groupon/Deals.SG. Sadly, the those resorts charge in SGD. So it’s much more expensive than having “adventure” in Tanjung Pinang πŸ˜€

  16. thank you so much… πŸ˜‰
